To me it means the same thing, a bunch of spoiled rich white kids (which is still fine, I have no issue with spoiled white kids) using a word or words they don't understand. Actually they don't even come close to understanding it, and probably never will. Its a complex word that has inspired more controversy than almost any other.
So while I don't think censorship is right, using words you don't even come close to fathoming is pretty stupid as well. At least make an attempt to understand what youre really saying when you use it and try to see it from the perspective of someone who has been truly affected, belittled, and discriminated against through the use of that word.
And thug used a replacement is just as stupid, you just want to create a new n-word? Why does the word thug pop into your sheltered little mind as a replacement anyways?
(ps my meter isn't broken, this is more for the people who really think this way, and trust me, the do exist.)
